I was saying a person shipping alcohol isn't technically legal. That hole business thing and adult signature required part is supposed to be added. Most of us doing trades are not shipping threw a business.

I think the best way is to print out own label and drop it off in the stores pile of boxes. I always take mine to a store and hate the question what's inside. I usually say car parts or collectible glass wear

I just tell them collectable bottles. Very fragile and valuable. The people at my nearest fedex don't even bother asking me anymore, and have the fragile stickers ready to go without me having to ask.

Last time I told the UPS girl it was collectible glasswear she got all excited and told me she had to open the package to insure I packed it correctly. I basically said no, she told me I had to fill out some waiver bull crap yada yada. I am going back to the car parts next time.
